1 Coordinate Geometry ProofsSlope: We use slope to show parallel lines and perpendicular lines. Parallel Lines have the same slope Perpendicular Lines have slopes that are negative reciprocals of each other. Midpoint: We use midpoint to show that lines bisect each other. Lines With the same midpoint bisect each other Midpoint Formula: 2121,22yyxxmidDistance: We use distance to show line segments are equal. You can use the Pythagorean Theorem or the formula:
2 Day 1 Using Coordinate Geometry To Prove Right Triangles and ParallelogramsProving a triangle is a right triangle Method 1: Show two sides of the triangle are perpendicular by demonstrating their slopes are opposite reciprocals. Method 2: Calculate the distances of all three sides and then test the Pythagorean’s theorem to show the three lengths make the Pythagorean’s theorem true.
